....I'll go against the grain.
I don't care about interleague play. I'm a traditionalist so I would rather not have it, but it's not unmanageable.
The all star game determining home field advantage is kind of a lark. I'm 50/50 on it.
The umpires are FAR better than they were when Bud came in.
Revenue sharing isn't equitable, but it's much closer than it was. The tax on salaries does tend to drag the yankees (and eventually the dodgers) down. Sooner or later those clubs will get tired of handing the astros a check to have somebody to play against and the rules will get even better.
I hate what happened with Loria and the expos and the Marlins, but I do like baseball in DC.
While nobody likes political blackmail, the new stadiums ARE better than the old ones.
The owners are making money hand over fist. From their perspective Bud was a spectacular success.
The trend for more playoff teams didn't stem from Bud. I don't think it's fair to blame it on him. Baseball does send far fewer teams to it's tournament and I think that's the way it should be.
PED's were and are a disgrace to the game, but boy did the fans sure show up.
You don't hear too much about labor strife with the union anymore. That certainly was not true when Bud took the commissioners seat.
The world baseball thingee during spring training.
I'm a fan, but Pete deserves what he got.
All in all, I think Bud's term was a rousing success. I really do. Particularly when you consider that the position serves at the request of the owners. I think the game is in much better shape than it was when he took the job.
